Nice place not too far from Iloilo city. The water is not super clear, but clean enough for swimming. They have an outside bar with cheap enough and nice enough food. One comment: in a place marketted at families, I would not call the drinks on the menu things like "blow job".... r

Very nice resort, bungalow 2 with dipping pool is great. Very friendly staff. Owner even give us a lift to IloIlo on our check out. Beach is the nicest directly in front of the hotel. We stayed there for 4 nights and had a really nice short holiday

I saw photos of the resort online and booked the Sun Room. When we got to the place, I immediately fell in love with the landscape! There were a lot of trees and you have a cottage all to yourself. If you want to have a nice, quiet, peaceful, and budget-friendly vacation, this is the place to be! The cottages... More

This place attracted me from the photos we saw online. You know how that can go..... So much better than it even looked from photos. Hector"the owner" and his staff have build a beautiful little resort that is everything you could want from a rustic yet elegant getaway. The artwork from Hector's niece decorates every hut and common area. I... More

An excellent beach resort, accommodating staff, and affordable food and packages. Everything you see in the pictures is what you get when you arrive there. Had the best dinner by the beach. It was very romantic and was very surprised with what they did to our room when we got back. They really know how to set a romantic mood.... More

All in all the resort is excellent. I highly suggest the resort to family and friends. The hospitality is so great that you can have conversation with all the resort's staff and make you feel you are in your 2nd home. The resort it self is very very relaxing, its far away from the city and no noise pollution. I... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights here with our 7 month old baby. It was a relaxing and beautiful resort to unwind in, maybe a little unpolished around the edges, but still a fabulous place to stay. We stayed in Bungalow I, which looked like the pictures on the website - it was a lovely room with a lovely... More

The room we stayed in was one of the newer rooms of the resort so it was quite good, however, they didn't have wifi or a television. The resort's food was really good and moderately priced. On our last night, I was bitten by a scorpion. Yes, a scorpion! We told the staff to ensure that they have to do... More
